Crashed At Chong Yen, Kamphaeng Phet

Discussion in 'Thailand Motorcycling Videos' started by Goran Phuket, Apr 3, 2017.

  1. Happened 8 weeks ago, mountains of Mae Wong National Park.

    Rear end fishtailed wildly and found myself sprawling over the tarmac. I wasn't riding fast, surface dry, no sand, diesel or oil spill....it just happened. Tires were warm, made 40km to this point...But shaken my confidence tremendously. Yes I know, not wearing gloves, that is because I just left National Park gates check point filling up some forms and taking pics before proceeding just a few km to my destination.

    Finally realized what the problem was: one pannier was fully loaded with tools and other stuff, things I never take out. The other was empty, left it in resort 40 kilometers away. Uneven distribution of weight affected the bike balance and there you go.

    Lesson learned.

  4. Thanks Paul :)
    No damage to bike....even crash bars not a single scratch. Only slight scratch at the bottom edge of pannier.
    These are 2mm anodized boxes, bought them in Switzerland from x-impact. Best on the market.
